Smoking Gun

Over at Macabre Monday they were challenging us to do something PMS- and while my stuff isn't as spooky/dark as some, I thought this still fits! It's got an angry woman and silver!
This is one of the image stamps I bought on evilbay awhile back, not sure what the name of it is but has Mars Tokyo and designed by Sally Mericle. @1995. The sentiment is from Viva Las Vegas stamps.
I kept it monochromatic and used papers from Echo Park Happy Days pad, Neenah black textured cardstock, Black Soot Distress inks, copics, spica pen for glittery heels and hair highlights (which you can't see well in the pic but in real life it's there!) And for the silver part I used some ducting tape I ran thru my cuttlebug with an embossing folder. Mics bling, ribbon and a Fiskars border punch, and Bob's your uncle!
And see that little extra strip of black framing her by the guns? That's because I dropped my Garnet spica pen after doing her lips and got a redish blotch on the edge of the image paper! I hate when stuff like that happens! But of course I had the whole thing done and decided to give her some lipstick, and bam! So I had to do a quick hide! Just thought I would share that. :)
